The Summer Exhibition Architecture Room hosts a talk discussing the winning project for this prize for up-and-coming architects – Flower Apartment by Yuji Tanabe.

Join us as Rob Wilson from the Architects’ Journal and Nigel Tonks from Arup, both members of the jury that selected the winner, take a closer look at Yuji Tanabe’s drawing of an apartment in the Chiba Prefecture district of Tsudanuma.

Nigel Tonks, Arup’s leader of buildings, London, describes the project:

“Among the entries from young and emerging practices, Tanabe’s restrained drawing for Flower Apartment speaks closely to the curator’s aim of architecture as an instruction-based art. This elegant piece works as a drawing and a model, depicting boundaries and scale in an engaging way. Tanabe’s approach to layering information authentically conveys a feeling of space in this simple apartment building.”
